DORA, the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment, will be 10 years old in May 2023 and is planning a weeklong celebration to mark the occasion. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, DORA will host two plenary online sessions and a global program of local or regional events. The celebration aims to promote conversations on what DORA has accomplished and what remains to be done in research assessment all over the world.
The two plenary sessions are scheduled to capture as many time zones as possible and to ensure community participation worldwide. The Asia-Pacific Plenary will be held on May 16, 2023, at 12AM UTC, and will feature introductory statements from DORA’s Vice-Chair, Ginny Barbour (Open Access Australasia), a keynote address by Mai Har Sham (The Chinese University of Hong Kong), and a panel discussion with experts from across the globe. The Africa, Americas, Europe Plenary will be held on May 16, 2023, at 12PM UTC, and will feature introductory statements from DORA’s Chair, Stephen Curry (Imperial College London), a keynote address by Sarah de Rijcke (Leiden University), and a panel discussion with experts from across the globe.
The global program of local or regional events will take place during one week in May 2023 and aims to highlight reform efforts, innovation in evaluation, research into evaluation systems, and more. DORA encourages community members across the globe to organize their own events on responsible research assessment during the week of May 15-19th, 2023. DORA will promote these events on its website and is calling for organizers who will lead virtual, hybrid, or in-person events on responsible research assessment.
DORA will accept event proposals from anyone interested in good research assessment, including academic staff or faculty, researchers studying biases in evaluation, librarians, research managers, early career researchers, bibliometricians, funders, initiatives for responsible research assessment, publishers, and societies. Events can be of any format, including webinars, conferences, seminars, and workshops. The deadline for submission is April 3, 2023. Once the proposal is accepted, DORA will reach out to the organizer for further information about the event to feature on the DORA website, including registration and related links. Organizers will also be invited to submit a blog summary of their event to be featured on the DORA website.
